A+ for the teacher and a must-try-harder D- for the student, for nasty letter

This will make the spelling police chuckle

Proofreading takes five minutes and keeps you from looking stupid.’

Cool Oh dear..... the teacher undermined the pupils self-esteem which,  is the thought crime of the century. As a consequence, I seriously doubt the teacher will receive any support from the school's heads when it turns out, he/she is being old-fashioned. As a result this teacher will be either heading for early-retirement or, the private sector. I've met a few ex-teachers who took alternate career paths after realising teaching today is not about the education but about pleasing the whim of the present Education Secretary.
